Not a prob.

Is this a question? If yes, then i'm a piano performance student at the UT at Austin. My dream is to become a conductor and perhaps get involved with film scores some time in the future.

Hmmmm...Tell you the truth, i've only listened to small sound clips from Hannibal. If you are sure the score is quite distinct then i would be happy to learn more about the particular score. Oh, and have i mentioned that i actually like a Zimmer score?-As Good as it Gets.

And another thing: Don't take this wrong, please do not be offended, but i believe that if you were a music student you would have a different opinion on what you've stated earlier(that great music should strike you right from the beginning). Have you ever heard a Beethoven Symphony that was so easy to understand right from the first time? No. Music, like any other form of art has a certain philosophy in it. And this is what i find in Goldenthal. I feel there is something strong in his music. Goldenthal, like Beethoven, makes me feel tired when i listen to him. Not because he is overbearingly loud but because he makes me think (don't just stick to his Alien3 score-there are other examples of great music by the composer). On the other hand, i have nothing against music that makes you feel good that is plain enjoyable. I wouldn't give the definition of Art Music to that category though.
And if you are indeed a music student, then i suggest you start questioning yourself a bit more when you listen to music in general. I repeat, no offense man.
